WASHINGTON, Nov. 11 -- There is a new look in Scientology. Most of us are familiar with the many changes of "mockups" that Dianetics and Scientology have gone through, and your reporter has done his share of sneering, but here is a change that to me is for the better.

It looks as though the HASI as an organization is definitely on the wane, and is being replaced by the decentralized activities I've mentioned in previous columns. You get processed at the Guidance Center, educated at the Academy, and communicated at by the Silver Springs Business Service.

Dr. Julia Lewis holds the whip over the Guidance Center, and seems to be turning out honestly satisfied pre-clears. I would especialljr-recommend Fernando Estrada, although most of the staff auditors are good.

Bob Nichols, D.D., D.Scn., is once more the communicator, this time for the S.S.B.S. Thoroughly processed and very recently married, he sees the world through shocking pink glasses.

At the Academy, as I've already said, its Drs.Dave Marray and Stimpert. Here are people who loo and act like the type to be running a religious academy. They are also very thorough, and have a real understanding of Scientology. Dave is particularly well liked, although I've heard nothing bad about Mary. either.

Dave has almost as much altitude around here as Hubbard. The wondrous thing is that LEE doesn't seem to mind. I'm not entirely clear as to all aspects of the situation yet, but I'll go on record as saying that this to me seems to be the healthiest situation I've seen in the upper echelons of Scientology.

In view of the recent rumors of a change in the policy at Scientology headquarters. here is a hazard at a guess as to why the old and notquite-dead policy of chopping down ne who stepped out of line was lowed.

It can be put in a few words. Anger is the lowest emotion on the tone scale that produces a motion

toward the environment. If a person is apathetic or in fear or is propitiating, it is such easier to boost him up to anger than all the way to enthusiasm. So, Ron has produced something to be "against", in order to get some action. For a long time it was the medical profession, then it became the "squ rrels" (and still is to some extent). The official attitude was that the medical profession wasn't worth fighting but there is a chance that the truth is that the medical profession is too big an opponent.

It may seem strange;. that I speak of the passing of this policy when PAB No. b3 is still six i"g in some of your mail boxes. Actually, it's more of a prediction than a description of the present state of affairs and I won't go into long reasons why I think the situation is changing. But there is hope for a policy of live and let live -- even for a situation in which publications each as T h e AEEEEEE may have approved correspondents at headquarters.

Rumor has it that the Issue 14 of ABILITY is to be the last of the "persecution" issues, but because of the tone of PAB 63, it may be that Ron will put out two lines -- one to the public through ABILITY and another to the "pros" through the PASs.

There it some indignation "here that there. is.:a "leak" to. The ABERu BEE` her e inoD..C. i At,iaast,one stu'deutEis konvinced that the.

Bob Nichols has a new bride in the former Elaine Joslyn, the first wedding to be performed in the Church of Scientology of Washington, D.C., by the Bev. Bill Young, LLD., D.Scn. Very, very aesthetic.

Burke Belknap is reported "getting of Scientology temporarily" while some sort of real estate deal calls him back to Phoenix... Jahn Seaborne has- just completed a "Coauditors' Hand "..

Way Suggested to "Run Out" Persons You Try to Please

by Ernest Pope

The strongest chains that bind humans are the things we do to please someone else without being aware of the reason for our action. Many techniques.have..been.devised, to uncover these habits and bring them into the open for observation. Here is one that seems to work in a number of cases.

Select a person who might logically be expected to have had or to have some influence on you. Probably better not to select parents to start with. Now, mock up (if you are a Dianeticist, just imag ne) a universe (a biosphere will do) where that particular individual does not exist. If possible, make one where he never existed. Now, what es would you make in your way of liv if you were in this universe? Wha would you do, how would you behave, if you had never heard of the individual in question? How would your future look if he or she did not exist? How would you plan your future if he or she were not around? Do this seriously and at some length with the person selected. Explore possibilities and impossibilities, too. Cover all of your reactions, if you want free of this person. Make a list, mental or written.

Put down any reaction of yours that comes to mind as you think of this person and as you build a universe without him. Now look over the list. Examine each item individually. Is it a behavior pattern that you want to keep for its own intrinsic merit? Is it one that has outlived its usefulness? What would happen if you discarded it? After you have temporarily exhausted the possibilities, select another person and repeat the whole :ranee. And so on. Go back to tting the original person after a few s. Lb you still feel you would image if he didn't exist? Why? Is there anyone so important that you cannot imagine a universe without him? Why? Try again. In this case it is highly important to persist until you can mockup your own universe and leave out ally person at will.

When you have covered the things to change when the selected person is left out of ycur universe, bring him back. Now, what changes in your outlook? Do you find other ways that you can change your behavior because of that person? Why? Here is a tool that can help you uncover wherein you are not cam31;tely you. Try it on yourself. it on your pre-clear.
